Blessings Harvest Greeting Card

Standard

 

Hey there Paper Peeps! Well we are starting to have a few cooler days and a bit of crispness to the air. Fall is just around the corner and it’s one of my favorite times a year. Beautiful Fall wreaths full of richly colored leaves are an iconic seasonal decoration and is the inspiration for this card.
I started with a card base in the A2 size cut from chocolaty cardstock. I knew the leaves would create a lot of contrast and texture so I kept the background papers fairly neutral.

I used the Fall Leaves die to create a nice pile of leaves to assemble a generously filled in circle.  Inks and Stickles add detail to the leaves. This Blessings sentiment block is a nice contrast to the dark background.

I layered the wreath on to a French Pastry die cut from crisp white cardstock. An additional smaller French Pastry Tiny Doily die is centered over the wreath and given dimension  with chipboard spacers behind. It’s topped off with a metal rimmed mailing tag , wooden clothespin and beautiful bow of hand dyed silk.

Bending and shaping the individual leaves before securing gave the wreath a lovely full and dimensional look.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
